Physiotherapy

Visiting Physiotherapist

Physiotherapy utilises the basic sciences of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics as background theory in the assessment and management of the patient, also manual assessment and treatment techniques, specific therapeutic exercise, selective electrotherapy and advice on posture and movement disorders.

 

Our in-house physiotherapist complements our medical expertise for a holistic view and approach to care for our patients.  We engage highly trained physiotherapists to look beyond immediate medical needs and ensure the overall physical and emotional well-being of our patients and their families.
